Summa OPOS

General information about OPOS Barcode:

  • Sending an OPOS job from the Editor to Printer and an OPOS cutter will result in two unique jobs, one in the printer and one in the cutter queue.
  • The print job contains a unique barcode and the cutter job also has this barcode information inside.
  • The cutter job will be put on hold by default.
  • When the cutter reads the barcode the corresponding job can be activated.
  • It’s very important for this system that there is an unique combination of printer and cutter job.
  • When a barcode Job is finished the plotter will try to find the next Barcode. If found this job will automatically start cutting. When the last OPOS job is cut A barcode reading warning will appear on the display of the Plotter. Just push enter to remove this warning.
  • So it’s important to know the start of a barcode Job is done by the Media Alignment function on the plotter.
